Morning Delays

This morning I had a few appointments and the boys were going to go to their Grammy's house for the morning.  We were doing good on time, clothed, fed, and the car was warmed up.  Nathan gets done brushing his teeth and says, "I need to wash my hair before we go."  Alright, I think, he is going to wet it down to get it under control...So I go to the kitchen to grab drinks for them and return to find this:

He literally washed his hair, with Softsoap, at the bathroom sink.  It was so funny, I had to stop for some pictures.  Next time this happens, I will be sure to take him literally!

Yipee, He's (almost) 3!!

We celebrated Nathan's third birthday on Saturday.  I am amazed that my little guy is 3 years old.  Well, officially not until Tuesday, but we are close enough!  Time truly does fly!

I had a party "theme" months ago...I found an adorable shirt on etsy that served as inspiration.  I loved the melon color and decided to go with blue as an accent color.  So, orange and blue "Yipee, I'm 3!!" it was.  These shirts are amazing, by the way.  She uses no ink and they are hard to describe how cool they are.  I ordered two for Nathan and one as a gift, I highly recommend this shop. 

Despite my early theme decision, the party snuck up on me, I felt so rushed at the last minute.  My wonderful mother was here to help, thankfully - thanks, Mom!

Lindsey designed the most amazing invitations and thank-you cards, I figure most of you received one, so no photo on here.  They were very cute, you are so talented, Lindsey!

Only other thing I did not take a photo of was the favors.  I ordered the neatest sidewalk paint kits from this seller on etsy, here.  They were packaged adorably and look like so much fun, I cannot wait to try one out myself!

Onto some party photos...

Trick or Treat 2011

This is a bit late, but here goes the Halloween overview for this year.  I am going to dress the boys along a theme as long as they allow me to...Last year they were Shrek and Puss 'n Boots. 

This year Nathan has been into Charlotte's Web and I had a spider costume from Nathan's first Halloween already, so on the hunt for a pig costume I went. I shopped ebay and Craigslist and found one for less than $20, "Yeah!", I thought.  So it arrives, well in advance, but it was sooooo small.  It was a 4-5 according to the listing, so I figured it would, if anything, be too large and he could wear clothes under it.  In addition to the 4-5 tag it says, "Fits to 33 inches".  What?  Wade is over 33", Nathan is about 37".  So, I rush upstairs to see if the spider will fit Nathan.  Thankfully it did, as a shirt, which worked.  And the pig fit Wade perfectly. 

This was Nathan's first experience with trick-or-treating and he did very well.  He only went to about eight houses, which was better for me because I do not have the temptation of the candy! 

We also made a trip to the fire station. The boys got a fire hat, a bag, and some candy. They were not too sure about Sparky the fire dog.
